Yup.  Internal server error.  My guess is they are bogged down with everyone trying to see & sign up for 2013 categories!

These bonuses are much more disppointing than Chase's in my opinion.  I don't think there is any quarter that would even give me a chance to hit $1,500 in spending - except maybe if I bought big purchases during the fourth quarter.

 

Maybe I will hold off on Discover...


Could you please inform me what bonus categories Discover offers for the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th quarters? Would appreciate it.

Discover hasn't listed full details for each quarter, but from their general descriptions, looks like April-June (listed as 'Spring Style') might be clothing stores, perhaps home improvement, July-September (listed as 'Summer Fun') might be gas, perhaps hotels or travel, and October-December (listed as 'Holiday Shopping') may be online shopping or B&M store shopping?

Re: Discover 5% Jan-March 2013

My personal favorite for 2012 was (and actually still is) 5% for all online shopping this quarter. Though I doubt they would do it again - I think I've already hit my spending cap on this and it's only 2/3 of the quarter passed.

In my wallet now: Amex PRG NPSL, Amex BCE $15k $17k (thanks to recent CLI), Chase Freedom 11k, CSP $6k, Chase United ME $5k, Citi Dividend $5.6k, Discover It $4.5k and a handful of other cards...
TU Dec 2013 - 752Sep 2013 - 764 - new all time maximum
